Lois Moss from Walk and Roll has been working with the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) and the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) on a bicycle safety initiative. Communities across the greater Cleveland area are candidates to receive funding from ODOT to help educate cyclists to help lower bike/car crashes.
Richard Wong, Cleveland Heights’ city planner, writes,
Mayfield Road is a problem from Coventry to Green: eleven crashes in about 3.4 miles. The only other places on the NOACA map that look as densely crashed from a quick first glance are Lakewood’s Detroit and Madison, Lorain Avenue in Cleveland, and Bagley from Berea to Middleburg Heights
The data is still a bit “raw,” but you can download the package and see a PDF maps of crashes across the Cleveland area, and review MS excel files with specifics.
